Description

This subseries contains oversized site, elevation, and floorplans that date from 1957 to 1998, but correspond to projects and exhibitions that took place from the 1970s to 1998. In the preparation stages of almost all of Segal's important public commissions one or more site plans or elevations would be provided or drawn in order to facilitate the installation of the sculpture(s). In addition to this, the planning of large-scale exhibition installations, especially those requiring input directly from Segal himself would also require oversized gallery plans.

These and other materials were separated from their relevant files for preservation reasons and included in this subseries. Separation sheets were put in place in order to indicate when an oversized document was removed to this subseries.

For clarity, the following terms have been included: Gallery plan is a plan that depicts the floorplan of a gallery with dimensions; installation plan is a plan that depicts the floorplan of a gallery along with notations for the placement of sculpture and artwork; elevation is a plan that depicts the vertical dimensions of a site; site plan is a plan that depicts the dimensions of an installation site that is not a gallery.

Physical notes: This subseries is housed in a large oversized box. Researchers are asked to secure an area appropriate for the proper handling of these large materials.

Arrangement

Arranged alphabetically.
